The year-long effort to achieve major health care coverage and insurance reform took a giant step yesterday when President Barack Obama released his proposal in anticipation of Thursday’s bi-partisan Congressional Summit.
Please find the link to the White House website that discusses his plan, which includes health care insurance industry reforms designed to contain costs and extend coverage to millions of uninsured Americans.
Our effort to restore in-patient medical services at the Martin Luther King, Jr. medical center has convinced me that health care is a major priority for residents of the Second District. Thursday’s Summit is a watershed moment in the decades-long effort to extend the benefits of near-universal health insurance coverage to the American people. I hope you will take a moment to read about the president’s proposal, closely follow the news out of Washington, DC these next few days, and let your members of Congress know what you think.
